On days when nothing falls perfectly in place, I fall imperfectly out of space.
"Mike" from "Desperate housewives" appeared as "Rukun" the Indonesian worker, came as promised to fix our 10 year old house. The many leaks on the roof, the blemishes on the walls, the water marks on the ceiling needed more than just a buff. If we had all the money, we would have probably done a total make over but we only had one thousand ringgit to spare for his troubles to which he unsettingly agreed.
So for three days Mike the Indonesian version and his wife became the guests in my house. They arrived early morning to start scrapping old paint before rolling the walls with a fresh coat of new colours. Before we had the extra money, I took the role as the painter of the house, painting a few square feet at a time, meddling sloppily with the rollers and brushes. If not for the vertigo I am suffering from, I would have gladly finished the job, brushing colours covering the walls all the way up to the ceiling and beyond. If you have been to my house you would have noticed the unfinished paint jobs. Only half of the walls were painted, the upper parts were left untouched.
The whole house was turned upside down for three days. Many treasures were unearthed, lost erasers, key chains, ear rings, hair bands, yoyos, cermin yang pecah, buku rampaian sekolah yang disorokkan kerana kerja tak habis. Put everything together and we found ourselves the lost ancient city of Atlantis! We beat National Geographic to it! Well waddaya know!
Everything is back to normal now except for the door of the master bedroom which has yet to be replaced. There's a big hole right in the middle, the work of my sweeter half 's flying kick. My kids locked themselves up in our room and they fell sound asleep. Screams and shouts were not answered and the keys were not found. So the door had to fall prey that eventful night. The kids laugh everytime they look back and remember Baba's forced entry. I laugh too, but Baba still hasn't he he he oops.
The response to my Muffs Promo has been simply overwhelming. I would like to extend it till the end of this week for all to take advantage of. Thank you so much for ordering and supporting and taking your precious time to stay a little while to view my work and to read my words. I appreciate it more than you will ever know. Thank you so much.
